Gov. Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State has pledged not to betray his supporters and residents of the state, if re-elected in 2023.
Yahaya made the promise while addressing the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign rally at Talasse community in Balanga Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.
He declared that his administration had performed well by providing critical infrastructure, improving the education and health sectors, among others, in efforts to enhance the living standards of the citizens of the state.
Yahaya said: “My performance has boosted the people’s confidence in this administration and I assure you, we shall not betray your confidence if re-elected.”
The governor stated that the APC government, from the federal to the state levels, was committed to improving the welfare and wellbeing of Nigerians.
“In just few years, our government is proud of what we did, and I am sure people are satisfied with our achievements.
“That is why I am confident. We will not betray your confidence if re-elected, and we will continue to deliver good governance, to the satisfaction of citizens.
“We have done our best in spite of the harsh economic challenges and we will continue to do our best in bringing development to Balanga and other local government areas of the state,” he said.
Yahaya said that his administration spent over N8 billion on road construction projects in Balanga LGA, in addition to other development projects in education, health, water supply, and agriculture, among others.
“We will spare no efforts to bring more development projects to Balanga Local Government Area; we will make sure we link all districts with road networks.
“We will revive the Balanga Dam to boost agricultural activities, create employment opportunities and power generation,” he said.
The governor advised potential voters to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), which he described as a political weapon, adding that they should come out on election days to vote APC candidates at all levels.
In his address, Zubairu Umar, the Director-General of the APC Governorship Campaign Council in Gombe State, called on the people of Balanga to vote wisely in the 2023 general elections, by voting for APC candidates at all levels.
On his part, Jamil Gwamna, the Coordinator of the campaign council, urged the people to re-elect Yahaya as governor and elect Chief Bola Tinubu as president in 2023.
Gwamna said that it was in the best interest of Nigerians to elect the two candidates.
